When I try starting up tomcat through eclipse(version 5.5; java 1.5), I get this error and I'm not really sure why, since my collegue have the system running on their machines (I would ask him about this, but he's on vacation):



could anyone please shed some light on this?

It sounds like Apache Digester (an XML to Java Object tool) is blowing up because it's trying to call an abstract method.

Did you try starting Tomcat without your app installed?

Oh ok, I tried starting up tomcat without the app and it worked fine. So it has something to do with the app or Apache Digester possibly?

I forgot to show some of the logging info before the error. I don't know if it makes any difference but here it is:



Then the error shown above shows up

*UPDATE*
I resolved the issue (actually another collegue did). After looking at the vm args, we saw this:



and put some xml jar file in common\endorsed in my tomcat dir. Thanks for the help though, it pointed me somewhere.
